Hi All

During a recent virus scan with AVG it came across a trojan called

Trojan horse Generic3.fbr
in the mswsock.dll file in i386i folder of service pack files.

I've googled but found nothing. An fbr file relates to a program that records the computer screen and turns it into a movie file.

Avg got rid of it but should I still be worried?

No huge need to worry, since AVG has removed it, but I suggest you start a new topic in Malware Removal - read the FAQ first - so we can make sure you are all clean. Trojans are very tricky.

As for the name - different antivirus companies often use different names for malware, there is little standardization.

In the case of Generic3 Google founds lots for me: http://www.google.co...lient=firefox-a

You will see from http://forums.spywar...showtopic=81287 that the extension .FBR is variable.
